Working for Levy is mostly fun and enjoyable
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Sonoma, CADecember 29, 2013
I enjoy working at Levy Restaurants because my co-workers and management are enjoyable to work with. I enjoy attending in the grand stand suites, or overlooking the temporary employees and making sure food is delivered on time at the right temperature. I have been able to further my experience as a catering server and bartender mixing simple vodka drinks – more... pouring wine and beer. I enjoy providing service to the different clientele we attract at Sonoma Raceway throughout the season. My favorite race thus far would be NHRA ( Drag RACE). – less

They don't care for their employees as much as they should.
Prep Cook (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 26, 2013
Pros: basketball games, and concerts
Cons: low pay, terrible manager, no benefits, only a part time job, no employee parking.
Met quite a few celebrities, basketball players, both current and hall of famers. However my manager didn't really know much about the kitchen and was very rude to her employees. Had to leave and find a new job. She made working at the restaurant very hard. Also the pay was very low, which was disappointing after working long hours for days and still – more... having such a low paycheck. No parking for employees so you had to make sure to bring change for the meters on the street. But that doesn't protect you from people getting into your car or stealing. Worked crazy hrs. No benefits. If they changed all of those and got rid of that manager, I'd probably go back. – less

Cash Room Attendant (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIDecember 5, 2013
I start by making sure the safe is balanced to set amount. Then in most cases I make up banks for either bartenders or for the concessions. Any were from two too fifty banks are made depending on the events. Sometimes doings audits and changing out monies.
When closing out, counting all banks and making a deposit of cash earned, then merging banks back – more... into safe and making sure safe is balanced. The hardest part of the job is the walking to keep track of my personal. – less

Very fast paced work environment but fun atmosphere being that its the Dodgers Stadium
cook at The Dodgers Stadium (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CANovember 24, 2013
Pros: free lunch, we get $15 voucher for lunch every day
Cons: if we're sold out then we get very short breaks because we have to produce.
I am the cook at the All-You-Can eat Pavilion at the Dodgers Stadium. a typical day is a sold out crowd with masses of people coming every minute. One of the hardest parts at my job is when we don't have enough people to keep up with the masses of the crown therefor leaving us to double work with the people that we have. The most enjoyable part is that – more... my stand is right on field level and when its break time i can see everything. – less

Food Server (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 18, 2013
Pros: free hot dogs chips and pop
Cons: short breaks mandatory
Stock suites with food and snacks for games as well as preparing the meals. Cleaning work areas. I learned the meaning of teamwork and hard labor of preparing for pre games under pressure. My co workers were very live and entertaining as well as a bit much and unprofessional at times but I didn't let that affect my work ethics. There Was not anything – more... hard about the job, but the most enjoyable part of the job was being apart of their career team. I just wish it wasn't a seasonal job and provided more work hours per week. – less

Concession Stand Manager/ Stand Supervisor (Current Employee), Auburn Hills, MIOctober 12, 2013
Pros: great ambience, people, events, and food
Cons: no hours, raises, benefits and advancement
One will come into the venue beginning there shift by preparing there concession stand for that days event. Start by doing the inventory of the chargeable and non-chareable product to see what is necessary to order for the event. Next is to call the order then to proceed to prepare the stand for the NFP's (non-profits). As each arrive you explain the – more... procedure to that particular stand. For each one of is not necessarily in the same stand each time as to the same for the NFP's. After all is set and the stand is ready to go the fun begins! We have a staff meeting where the stand manager (myself) goes over all procedures and trains anyone new. we then learn each others names and go over unanswered questions. Now we are ready for the doors to open! I ( the manager ) assist through out the event with all questions ranging to; "wheres the cheese; how do call for a wet spill; someone fell what do I do; security wants a popcorn bucket what do I do; he's intoxicated I don't want to serve him can you help me;" and so on. As the night nears the alcohol time we have to get the patrons served as quickly as possible while watching for signs if of inebriation. I would have to say that this is one of the most challenging parts of the position. Especially due to multiple distractions at once such as questions while discontinuing to serve a particular patron that may be past their limit. All in all I find it quite enjoyable to bring satisfaction to those around me. especially when something seems just out of reach and I have given them that relief we all know so well with a side of have a nice day. – less

Productive a fun workplace, with flat screens in the bar.
Bartender (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAOctober 11, 2013
I would take inventory of bar, clean and set up bar. Greet customers as they approach or past my bar. I learned alot of things while bartending, I think the 2 main things is askin for identification becoming 2nd nature, and being able to recognize when someone is intoxicated or impaired. The management was good and dependable. I worked with people that – more... shared the same passion I have for being a service to the public. After being in this field for awhile, I think the biggest challenge is dealing with a patron that is intoxicated to the point that they're not in their normal state of mind. On the flip side of that, it's refreshing when you're in a environment of alot of people, who are laughing.....having fun....and they come to you and say that they appreciate your service and they felt at home!!! – less

Director of Catering (Former Employee), St. Louis, MissouriOctober 10, 2013
Pros: great insurance benefits
Cons: no life
This is a great company if your young, no children and want no life. In management you work constantly and when you have time to catch your breath, they're sending you out of town to work.
My day would start at 10am and end anywhere from midnight till 2am depending on event. The most enjoyable party of the job was the people I worked with, we had a – more... fantastic management staff but once you went any higher, no one gave a rat about you. – less

Levy Restaurant
Retail Specialist (Current Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 7, 2013
Overall Levy is a nice company to work for. You can go to just about any state and find a job within the company. They don't offer benefits well at least I don't recieve them. I worked in the retail store located in the United Center. I feel as if i'm a teenager in high school more so me going to work everyday. The treatment and lack of respect the – more... employees recieve from management is sub par and unnaceptable. Being that its a sports arena you would think it's a fun atmosphere. Totally not the case. My boss went so far one day as to say to us "the employees" that she didn't want to hear us laughing. My mind is exhausted from working at this place. When I started I looked forward to going to work whenever I was scheduled now I OVERLY HATE going to work. I only stay for the fans and the genuine pleasure I get out of making others experiences memorable for them. If you're a real person with 'real' bills this is not the job for you seeing is how you will only be scheduled on game days. If there is extra work offered it's supposed to go according to senority, Well that's not the case either. It goes according to favoritism. I wonder do the CEO's ever visit that place. They should really plant a mole in that store to see excatly what i'm talking about when I say how poorly the store is being mismanaged. Oh yea they provide you this really drab employee lunch which I find shamefully amusing seeing is how Levy provides itself on being one of the top performers in food service. :) Way to go Levy Restaurants mission accomplished. Feel free to apply people because I myself and a host of other people have either quit or soon planning to... Worst job I ever had and it really sucks because I love the fans and the atmosphere and I love my Bulls and Blackhawks! – less
